Water management company Aqualia plans to launch a commercial-scale demonstration project using waste water to cultivate algae for biofuel production, which could fuel 400 vehicles, the firm said on Monday.
Spain's Aqualia, owned by construction and services company FCC, in collaboration with European partners, has already started construction of algae culture ponds at a waste water treatment plant in Chiclana, northern Spain, which should be able to produce 500 litres of biodiesel a year and 1,500 cubic metres of biomethane.
Aqualia eyes large-scale algae biofuel production
Algae is pretty hot right now. I was driving around town and saw a car with a bumper sticker for www.algaefuel.org ... turns out the guy is local and trying to also compete for the prize of the best systems for growing / converting algae to biofuel.
From his site:
Our process is based on proven technology for the treatment of municipal, industrial and agricultural wastewater.
The idea of using sewage / wastewater to feed the algae is pretty cool!
